Muji Facial Cotton Pads

Muji Cotton Pads01

I bought my first pack of Muji facial cotton pads about 3-4 years ago and never looked back. On daily basis, I use them for removing makeup. I use them for removing nail polish too. Sometimes, when I have the luxury of time, I would soak them up with SK II treatment essence, lay them on my face like facial mask. Wonderful! Some find it expensive simply because it’s from Muji. Well, I spend one or two dollars more on the cotton pads and save lots of my liquid products that I use with the facial pads. Continue reading

The Body Shop Shea Beautifying Oil

TBS Shea Beautifying Oil

Introducing my new found love – The Body Shop Shea Beautifying Oil

When I first saw it at the store, I wasn’t really sure what use can I make out of it – given that I have tons of body lotions at home and given up using oil as leave-in conditioner on my hair. However, the store was running a “Buy 2 Get 1 Free” promo, I didn’t want to overstock my favorite Aloe Vera Day cream and TBS had discontinued Buriti range, so I got myself a bottle of their newly launched beautifying oil to try.

Managing Your Child – Give Options

20130702 Managing Ur Kids - OptionsThat’s right, you heard me right. Options. It’s really part of parenthood and managing a child. Many times I heard parents yelling at their kids to stop whatever mischievous they were executing. The most straight forward word that usually come out of the parent’s mouth would be “NO” or maybe “STOP”. Tell me frankly, how many times do you have to repeat to make your message through? Some parents and experts suggest divert their attention. Well, I tried. After a while, my kid knew the trick, eventually it did not work anymore. Continue reading

You’re back, Mommy!

My 2.5yo has a favorite parent. Yup, that’s right, a favorite parent – her daddy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m perfectly fine with it. In fact, I believe I play an important role in nurturing this father-daughter relationship, which I’ll talk about it in future. So all this while I had the impression that my present is not really on top of my daughter’s list. I mean if the daddy is playing with her, I can go do my own stuff; or the daddy is tucking her in during bedtime, I can go do my own stuff.

This day we brought her to my sister’s house to spend the afternoon there while we spent some quality couple time together at the movie. When we returned couple of hours later, the moment I stepped into my sister’s house, my 2.5yo came running from the kitchen and hugged my legs. With her teary eyes, she mumbled, “You’re back!”

I thought she would run to her daddy too, but surprisingly she stuck to me. That was when I realised I held an important position in my 2.5yo’s heart too.
